"Radio Liberty (RL), a division of the U.S.-funded Radio Free Europe (RFE), recently fired a large portion of its staff after the passage of a Russian law prohibiting foreign-owned media outlets from broadcasting on AM frequencies. The unexpected mass layoffs came as a shock to RL journalists and Russian human rights activists alike, and spurred accusations that the Obama administration is kowtowing to Russian President Vladimir Putin as he seeks to silence the democratic voice that helped topple communism...It comes on the heels of the ouster of the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID), a nonprofit aid group recently banned from operating in Russia."

It operated there for 60 years.

Good. That will make it harder for the US to gain control of the eastern Russian republics.

Impressed by Putin...

People, who understand Russian, may watch Anatomiya Protesta 2 documentary by NTV. It shows nicely, what US is doing (pathetically - it's just a waste of tax payers billions) recently to overthrow Russian government. They even discussed using Chechen terrorists to stage attacks - e.g. train bombings.

The USA is no longer any kind of example of freedom. Why with our crushing taxes on the middle class would we think we have anything to say about freedom? Socialism in the USA beats anything they had in the USSR.
